If there is anything that I learned on my trip across the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail is this – Sometimes it’s a grind! There are times when the view is unbelievable, or the quietude is breathtaking, or the thrill of making it to a campsite is exhilarating…and then there are times that you have to put your head down and grind up or down the side of a mountain. If you stop, you won’t get back up. If you quit, you’ll never know the joys of victory and fulfillment. So grind away!
There are a lot of days like that in our everyday life as well. Days when you need an internal gyroscope to level you, an internal compass to guide you, and an internal GPS to remind you how far you have already journeyed and how far you have to go. When you connect this daily productivity hack to biblical meditation, you’re already a quantum leap from where you are, to where the Divine longs for you to be.
I prefer to call that my Daily Productivity Plan. It includes my gratitude journal, declaration of affirmation, ongoing routine tasks/reminders, the Must-Do’s, Should Do’s, Meditation notes and room for notes for later. I do this on paper these days. It seems to help me retain and ponder better. I then capture my Daily Productivity Plan on camera and save it to my Evernote for posterity and future planning.
This is the simple tool that captures the various tools and routines that we spoke of last week on this BLOG. I’ve attached a copy for you HERE. You can download the pdf and then customize as you like. I use a 5.5″ x 8.5″ executive size. If you would like a master sheet designed with your personal info, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send you the details. Cost? $15.
Also – Below is a picture of today’s Daily Productivity Plan from my notebook (no edits).
When I am consistent to plan, I am consistently more peace-filled, more fulfilled, more satisfied, and more intentional
I hope this will help you as well.
